Fisherboy: Imaginarily Directed By Ishmael Bernal
A Story by Jonathan Aquino (10 of 11)

The next day, the fishermen already on the shore applauded as Berto's boat landed. They all rushed to pull the heavy net. It was bursting with fish. 
"Oh, Mang Berto!" gushed Sendong giddily. "It feels like hitting the Sweepstakes!"
Orlando had been grimly silent.

Berto strolled towards Temyong who'd just reached shore. "Well, kapitan?" he asked, not without a hint of gloating as he eyed the puny catch on the boat.
"Yeah, I know it looks pathetic compared to yours," Temyong told him, as he and Jay rested from dragging the boat. He looked at the boy at the other side. "But it's enough for us," he said.
 Jay smiled.
 Temyong smiled back and turned to Berto.
"And I sleep better at night!"


The water was calm and unbelievably blue.
"It's your fourth day as a fisherman, Jay," smiled Temyong. "What can you say so far?"
"It's good," said the boy, "but hard. But I'm getting used to it, Tatay Temyong!" He paused, not knowing how to say it. "Uh, Tatay Temyong? Can I ask you something?"

There was an explosion.

On the far distance, the water was churning beside a boat with three laughing men.
"Our friends are celebrating the New Year," Temyong said wryly. "Go on, Jay, what is it?"
"Well," the boy said hesitantly, "I notice that you can really catch a lot more if..." He trailed off, embarrassed.

Another explosion.

"You know, Jay," explained the fisherman, "when you use dynamite, you also blow away their hatchings. Pretty soon, there be anything left to catch."

Explosion.

"Oh," was all Jay could say.

Another explosion.

Then screams of alarm.

Jay looked behind. Blood drained from face as he saw the burning wreckage of what used to be a boat.

"Hurry, Jay!" shouted Temyong, paddling furiously towards the floating pyre. "Faster!"

"Kapitan!" screamed Sendong who was nearest them. "That was Mang Berto's boat!"

Temyong was stunned, momentarily paralyzed.

"Mother of God," he whispered.

"Tatay Temyong!" said Jay, crying shamelessly, "Kuya Orlando is in that boat!"

My latest published article, "A Celebration of Filipino Movies," appears today, April 14, 2013 in Philippine Panorama, the Sunday magazine of The Manila Bulletin
Film is more than a mirror to society. It defines and enriches the culture. It shows who we are, what we were, what we could have been, and what we can still become

This Huggybear story "A Celebration of Filipino Movies" is a salute to our rich cinematic heritage. It is also a timeless tribute to Marilou Diaz-Abaya, Mario O'Hara and Celso Ad Castillo, three of the greatest filmmakers in the colorful history of Philippine cinema

Alabang, Muntinlupa

I just woke up, basking in the silence. It's the tail end of a fulfilling and enlightening rest-days weekend. I'm writing this diary entry as a series of SMS vignettes to B., a long-time friend and official text marathon partner. I'll suffer if I disrupt my noctural body clock because I'm on a graveyard shift,

I told V., another close friend since 1998, when he invited me to his pad in Malate when I went to Manila yesterday. That was early morning, I was just waiting to get my custom-tailored jeans from the Recto underpass at the University Belt. The store was already open but the owner still wasn't there. I had to wait, making a mental note not to patronize Dingo shop again, but I made the time productive by going in an Internet shop to do some research and get some print-outs for my planned articles on neuro-linguistic programing and Auraeus Solito.

Later, I went to V's place and we went to mine.
